Charming 17th century building on the banks of the sleepy Magdalena river, with a picturesque courtyard garden, a roof terrace and a serene yet cheerful atmosphere.

Set on the banks of the Río Magdelena and just a stone's throw from the centre of historic Mompós, this lovely 17th century building is a wonderful place in which to unwind in a hammock or rocking chair, easing into the town's distinctly slow and sleepy pace of life.

The family-run Casa Amarilla follows a traditional colonial design with a beautiful courtyard garden at its centre, bursting with the vibrant colours of tropical plants and abuzz with hummingbirds. There's also a rooftop terrace overlooking the tiled rooftops and serene streets below.

Guestrooms are stylishly decorated with wooden furniture, ceiling beams and shuttered windows; some have their own private roof terrace. There's no restaurant but a delicious breakfast is served in a room at the back adorned with murals, and there's also a communal kitchen which, together with the many relaxation areas dotted around the building, lends a sociable, friendly atmosphere.

What our clients say

  • Thank you for providing this fantastic trip to a country where so many are still hesitant to travel to. Colombia is a diverse, beautiful, vibrant and amazing country to visit.…

  • From the trips arranged by JLA, we both found the Amazonas region wonderful. It was quite emotional seeing the Amazon River for the first time and floating around the tributaries,…

    MD, London
  • Colombia was superb. A wonderful variety of scenery and cultures, and people trying their hardest to live normal lives and welcome visitors very genuinely.

    JK, Basingstoke
  • Barichara and the walk to Guane. Also the village of Raquira.

    RH, London
  • Highlights?: I cannot really think of anything that wasn't memorable. Perhaps my overriding memory is of the friendliness and helpfulness of the ordinary Colombians I encountered.
